Sasha is the Manager of Hivelocity’s Billing Team and has been a part of the Hivelocity family for over 10 years.  Sasha came to us fresh out of college, having just finished her senior year at the Florida State University.  Back in 2004 when Sasha showed up to our door for an interview Hivelocity was only 2 years old and we were very much still finding our way.  Luckily for us, Hivelocity was Sasha’s first job out of school and her threshold was high for dealing with some of the bumps every start up deals with.  As she settled into her role, Hivelocity seemed to settle in right along with her.  Don’t tell Sasha but this place would run about as smoothly as a government health care website if she were not around.  Since we have customers in over 130 countries, some of you likely won’t get that reference… soooooo we would run as smoothly as a North Korean stock exchange, as well as a Chinese iPhone, as well as a Windows cPanel server….now do you get it?  It would not be good.

At the time of Sasha’s hire back in 2004 she was the only female working at Hivelocity.  Over the last year or 2 we have managed to attract a few more female employees within our organization but for a long time it was just Sasha among 40 men.  It should be no surprise that her being surrounded, some might say trapped, by testosterone the last few years has led to her favorite past times being mud runs, fantasy football and playing soccer.  Had it not been for that fortuitous day many years ago when she walked through our doors ,resume in hand, today she might love shopping and “Sex in the City” reruns.   Doubtful, but maybe.

Sasha’s role at Hivelocity has grown each year she has been with us.  She was here to add our 100th server to billing and she will be here when we add our 11,000th server in the not too distant future.   Truth be told, she is likely a big reason for our success over the years.  She keeps us organized, makes sure we get paid and has thrived with every challenge we have given her.   If you have been a customer of Hivelocity for any period of time there is a good chance you have either exchanged an email or had a live chat with her.  She is a staple in our organization and loved by employees and customers alike.  Sasha works Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.  Treat her nice, she is in charge of your billing and making sure new dedicated server orders get deployed.

Rapid Restore

Backup your entire server’s data every night and have access to 5 days of rolling restore points.  Restore your server’s data, OS and configuration any time you need it.

Our Rapid Restore service saves the day during accidental data loss, hardware failures and virus contraction. Simply pick your recovery point and restore the data from that day. 

DDoS Protection

While our competitors may advertise DDoS protection, most often, they are merely implementing easily evaded router rules or simply black-holing targeted servers. They consider this “DDoS protecting their network.” However, neither of these solutions should give comfort to any online business. Should your site be attacked, chances are likely both of these options will end with your server being taken offline. At Hivelocity, we take the responsibility of keeping your servers online very seriously. For this reason, we offer two very serious forms of DDoS protection.

FREE

Every solution we provide includes our Filtering Edge of Network System (FENS). FENS is a series of proprietary systems that proactively monitors and protects the entire Hivelocity Network from most common Denial of Service (DOS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

$15/MONTH PER SERVER

For an extra fee, you can enhance your server’s protection further with the addition of our Server Defense System. Our Server Defense System sits in front of your server, inspecting inbound data and looking for malicious traffic. The moment an attack is detected, it instantly begins scrubbing each data packet. Hivelocity’s Server Defense System delivers business continuity even in the face of massive and complex attacks.

Our Server Defense System is like adding an alarm and armed guard to your business, alerting you to and destroying anything attempting to jump that fence. Our Server Defense System utilizes internally developed proprietary systems in addition to Corero’s Threat Defense Smartwalls for data packet scrubbing. Each of our data centers is a scrubbing center with Corero Smartwalls on-premise, allowing us to provide on-prem zero-lag data scrubbing.

SSL Certificates

The security of your online commerce and protecting your customers’ data is as important to us as it is to you. When your customers see the green bar, they will know their connection to you is protected. We offer single domain, multi-domain, and wild-card certificates.

We offer industry leading 128-bit encryption certificates, allowing you to conduct e-commerce with complete security. Inspire confidence in your customers by displaying any number of seals and indicators certifying that your site is secure.

Load Balancing

Adding this service to two servers with identical content will allow you to distribute your load evenly across your hardware. Don’t lose business because you couldn’t handle the demand. Load balance and handle your biggest resource spikes with ease.

Firewalls

Stop attacks, prevent unauthorized access, and achieve regulatory compliance. Our Juniper hardware firewalls offload the work so your server never has to consume resources protecting itself from malicious traffic. A single firewall can be used to protect multiple servers.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage offers users redundancy and easy accessibility, ensuring your data remains secure and readily available. Scale to as much as you need for only a 20¢/GB.

Cloud Storage is distributed and replicated across many servers, protecting your data from hardware failure. Highly scalable, it can handle thousands of client connections via TCP/IP. Connect to your virtual drive with SFTP, FTP, and SSHMount and in the future NFS and AFP. Cloud Storage is based on a stackable design which is upgradeable up to 2TB per instance.
